rooms for hire

Room and Hall hire for drama - music - training - workshops - parties - meetings.

Our online calendar (see the side-bar) can help you to plan your booking.

 

An excellent venue for presentations, training, workshops, dances, theatre, concerts or fund-raising nights, private parties, exhibitions, or carpet sales. It's wonderful for live music, its acoustics being much appreciated by touring professional musicians.

Main Hall

An excellent space for live music (we're told the acoustics are excellent), dances, theatre, fund-raising nights -  for exhibitions, square dancing, or even such things as carpet sales.

It's much used for private parties and activity groups, of course.

Main hall showing stage and wood floor area
  • At the Westerly end is a stage linking to a dressing room. The stage is about 13 feet deep and 20 feet wide between the front pillars, with limited space in the wings. Height's about 13 feet.
  • The stage is available. Stage lighting and a ceiling mounted projector and a large pull-down screen also are available by agreement with their owners (local Drama and Cinema Groups). Mention these in your booking request if you need them.
    If you're unsure, contact our Bookings Secretary.
  • The Hall can take about 120 seated (100 more comfortable) - 150 absolute maximum.
  • We recommend maximum 120  if the stage or the cinema screen are part of the plan, as people cannot be too close, especially if a stage-apron is being used .... try a "test layout" perhaps.
  • Overall sizes approximately 37.5 feet by 28.5, with a maximum height of about 12 feet.
  • Double doors link to Pritchard Room.

Government, Council, and similar Service users - £10 per hour.

'Green' and energy issues

 

The Pritchard Room was completely refurbished in 2014 thanks to generous financial aid from Awards for All and a DECC Green Deal Pioneer Grant for Energy Efficiency from Shropshire County Council.

 

As a result of the energy-efficiency works included in its refurbishment, the room is an example of the measures that are available to other community buildings, local businesses and individuals for improving energy efficiency in their own buildings and homes.  Local schools may also be interested in using the Pritchard Room as an educational resource for the same reasons.

Bar/cafe area

It's brimming on events evenings !
  • This area can be used for small meetings and gatherings.
  • For use just of the room with no other facilities, it's £5 an hour.
  • If the bar is open and serving at the same time, the bar-charge is £7 an hour (£12 an hour in all).
     
  • The cafe area and kitchen combined also can be hired to provide a cafe service that makes sales to the public. This is a different arrangement to an ordinary hire, and is dealt with separately. Contact our Bookings Secretary if you're interested in a short or longer term hire. The conditions can be seen via the button.

Created using 1&1 website-start by and for Broseley's Birchmeadow Centre's web-person. That person has written a page that gives opportunity for others to see what is going on, in the events of him/her being run over by a bus - 125webbY. Documentation that is not of such crucial importance that it must NOT be seen by the puiblic, but which is of interest to committee members can be seen via the BCMC button in the sidebar, bcmc125. But we also are able to use our website TF%125%lp to bring about up to the minute amendments to such things as events information. Our calendar exists as an embedded 'app' and is populated via our GoogleMail account, not directly via these 1&1 pages.
